Archbishop Timothy Dolan 'Betrayed' by ObamaTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
"Betrayed" brushes over what really happened ... which is that Barack Obama flat-out lied to Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan - in person.
Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, head of the Archdiocese of New York, has now publicly criticized the Obama administration's new HHS mandate. Specifically, he has stated that the President Obama betrayed a commitment made to him weeks ago in a personal meeting. CBS reports:As Stephen P. White points out, it's well worth reiterating that this is not just a "Catholic Issue." Anyone interested in a serious discussion of the issue by a panel with unequaled expertise in the matter will find this video well worth their while. You will find nary a sectarian argument in its entire 86+ minutes.Dolan said he met with the president weeks ago in the Oval Office to talk about the law. Dolan said the president gave his promise the provision would go away, but it hasn't. "It seems to be at odds with very sincere assurances that he gave me, that he wanted to continue to work with the church in these endeavors and views and projects he shared a passionate interest in, so I can't figure it out," Dolan said.
"When I left the Oval Office, where I was very grateful for his invitation to be there, I left with high hopes. That nothing his administration would do would impede the good work that he admitted and acknowledged in the church," Dolan said. "And I'm afraid I don't have those sentiments of hope now."
